Found only a few miles from Sandringham and Hunstanton in North-West Norfolk, Bircham Windmill is considered to be one of the best remaining examples of a British Windmill.
Bircham Windmill is also the only working windmill in the area to be open to the public. Brave visitors can ascend the five floors to the fan stage.
Carefully restored to look just as it did over a Century ago, a visit to Bircham Windmill offers the rare opportunity to experience the history and character of a Norfolk Corn Mill – a phenomenon that was once prolific in this region.
On site is also the original bakery and a baking shop, from which the inimitable smell of freshly baked bread will welcome you. The baking shop sells various flours, fresh bread, scones and cakes as well as baking paraphernalia, recipe books and much more. You can also experience bread baking for yourself, with their ‘Make & Bake’ or ‘Bake a loaf from scratch’ (£3.25 and £5.50, respectively).
Also for Children (and grown-up animal lovers of course!) are the adorable Donkeys, sheep and goat. With the opportunity to meet the animals and an Under 7’s play area, you can relax in the Mill garden while your kids play.
Bircham Windmill also has an on-site Tea Rooms (serving home made cakes, scones and light lunches along with their famous Clotted Cream Teas), Gift Shop, Windmill Museum, Film Room and trails & walks around the Mill for cyclists and walkers.
With so much to do and enjoy, most of which is free and can be accessed separately to the Mill itself, Bircham Windmill is a novel day out in Norfolk that will appeal to all members of the family.
If you wanted to stay at Bircham Windmill they have two wonderful Shepherd’s Hut and a campsite with and without electric hook ups.
